Llandovery has now been joined at the top of the Premiership table by Newport after their bonus point win in the Gwent derby.

Despite trailing 25-24 in a heated match against Ebbw Vale, Newport sealed a 31-25 win with constant attacks.

The Drovers and Newport now stand tied on 90 points with the Drovers holding a marginal upper hand due to a greater number of games won.

This has set the stage for an intriguing clash between the two at Newport Stadium.

Although Newport has played one more game than Llandovery, the Carmarthenshire side has not lost hope of a victory should they fall to defeat this Thursday.

Elsewhere, Ammanford RFC won 30-28 against Tata Steel in a game that saw a tight competition until the end.

In spite of a good lead by Ammanford, poor handling and tackling allowed Tata back into the game and they put up a tough fight.

There were multiple instances of brilliant plays including a hat trick by winger Ceri Rees within the first 25 minutes.

Despite a narrow victory, Ammanford still have three tough games to finish their season.

Betws secured a 21-5 win in a tightly contested game, scoring 13 points in the final 10 minutes.

They remain undefeated in 14 league matches and are comfortably 10 points clear at the top of the table.

Their upcoming match with Llandeilo is much anticipated, especially after the latter's 27-16 win over second-placed Tumble.

Cwmgors RFC was defeated 19-14 by Tonmawr at Parc y Werin, continuing their struggle at the bottom of Division 2 West Central.

Owen Davies and Jordan Smith managed to score for the home side, giving some relief in light of their recent losses.

Meanwhile, Amman United's fixture away at Tycroes was postponed.
